Hello Everyone,Welcome!

It is my belief that the 'Rights of Animals',
respect for 'Mother Earth', and eating a
'healthy plant-based diet' are all
inter-related in helping solve the health
and environmental problems for our planet
and for us as individuals. I hope this page
and the other pages at MarcusSharpe.Com
will help in your search for information on
these important issues. My
page is just a click away, then stop by my
Animal Rights page where I have compiled
a partial list of Extinct Vertebrates of
North America.

Why BioDiesel?

Biodiesel is Biodegradable,
it's Renewable
It has the advantages of dramatically
reduced sulfate and hydrocarbon
emissions and reduces particulate
matter. It is nontoxic and does not
damage water quality.

Take care and thanks for visiting........
